... the joys of shore power and sunshine. Milazzo, as cool as it is -- for viewing from Milena out into the sea it does not have either, shopping or restaurants -- but it makes up for all because of shore power, and water, so we all can have big showers again. Great port, Milazzo! Poor Jacques, and Marina, they are left cooking again. While I love to eat on board more than anywhere else, I feel badly for them, and wish they could have a break from the ...
... and equitable administration is said to have presented a strong contrast with that of the despots and tyrants of the other Sicilian cities. He welcomed Timoleon with open arms, and afforded him a secure resting place until he was enabled to carry out his plans in other parts of Sicily. Andromachus was not deprived of his position of power when all the other tyrants were expelled by Timoleon, but was permitted to retain it undisturbed till his death..... There is no doubt ...
... on previous nights. Matt started with salmon tartare, and I had Caesar salad. We both had beef tournedos. Dessert was apple crumble for Matt, and lemon curd in phyllo for me. We then returned to the room, organized our laundry to hand in for service tomorrow, and packed our backpack for tomorrow's shore excursion in Athens. It will be an early day, as we need to meet up with our tour group at 8:00 am. Better get to bed after such a busy ...
... anchor and call it the total end of the crossing journey..... okay -- now to continue.... What a lovely, motor-less sail we had, cruising 7-7.5kph, from Spartivento down the Southern tip of Italy, and crossing at the lower entrance of the Straits of Messina, over to the island of Sicily. The sun was burning hot, as we silently glided through the water, lazying our way toward our destination. After hearing ...
... up a switchback-filled highway to about 6,000 feet elevation, which is as far as the road goes. Total height of the volcano is just under 11,000 feet. At the crater, we stopped at one of several restaurant/gift shops for a free cannoli (yum!) and some shopping time (of course). We then proceeded to follow our guide, using convenient wake-talkie-with-earphone contraptions, on a 20-minute walk around one of the many side-craters of the volcano. Apparently, once a ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Bel Soggiorno Hotel Taormina
Fantastic Place to stay!
I had a great experience at this great hotel!
It is excellent value for money. The building is beautifully located in a lush garden with incredible views over the sea and Mount Etna.
The hotel is in a gorgeous palazzo with lots of character.
The rooms are fairly simple, but clean, well equipped and maintained!
Bathrooms are nice, and beds comfortable!
The breakfast on the terrace outside was just perfect to set us off for the day!
Would love to go back again!
A great stay at the Bel Soggiorno
I stayed in the Bel Soggiorno for four days. It is situated in a lovely, quiet position in Taormina with the most wonderful views. The staff are most helpful and welcoming, making for a relaxing and restful stay in Taormina. Do not expect plush luxury but the rooms have everything you need for a pleasant holiday. There is a wide and varied choice for breakfast that sets you up very nicely for the day. I look forward to returning in the near future.
Previous reviews have accurately captured the feel of Hotel Bel Soggiorno -- pleasant staff, knockout views of the Ionian Sea and Mt. Etna from the terraces, a delicious breakfast, good value for the price, free parking (the slope is daunting but manageable), and the bonus of an uphill stroll to town to stimulate the appetite for its many delicacies.
It's great to read these more recent reviews and to see that this hotel still gives so much pleasure.
Loved our stay!!
Have just got back from the most wonderful holiday in Sicily. We stayed at the Bel Soggiorno for 2 weeks and could not fault it. The views are breathtaking from all the terraces. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. Breakfast plentiful (loved the bread and cakes!) The temperature reached 40 degrees during our stay so the A/C was most welcome. Take my advice and go B&B as there are dozens of restaurants in the town to choose from to suit all tastes and budgets. We shall definitely return!!
everyone looking, reading, guessing, hoping that the hotel they choose in taormina will be perfect. life is not perfect but choosing a hotel is not that hard.
Farrell Family: Thoroughly enjoyed our stay!
As of Feb 2004... ... Hotel is simple yet adequate. Owner and staff friendly and give good service. Parking slightly interesting as there are limited spaces on a steep driveway. Room is fine although plumbing could do with modernisation. Room had tv (BBC World 24) and aircon which can heat or chill. Breakfast on terrace is great fun and the views are breathtaking: southern Italy to left, sea dead ahead and Mount Etna to right. Private garden sports juicy orange trees - unbelievable flavour! Short walk to town but does involve climbing a few steps. Simple yet quiet and pleasant. Visit www.*************************** for more info and pics.
Well I liked it!
I have got to say firstly that my husband hated this hotel with a passion. I like to think he mistook the faded grandeur with decrepitude and the signs of character as dirt! Ok, it didn't have the comforts of a modern hotel and we forsook a room with a decent bath for a room with a terrible bathroom but fantastic views! I think it was more than worth it. I have only stayed in one place with finer views and that was in Venice overlooking St Marks Basin and all its glory (again husband disagrees and plumps for Onda verde, Praiano for 2nd place) The rates were reasonable,the parking free (if a bit hazardous, and the breakfasts, terraces and garden - sublime. And as husband can't manage computer I have the final word on this one!
